The Zambia Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ZACCI) has urged the private sector to take advantage of business linkage programmes being brokered by government.
ZANIS reports that ZACCI President Michael Nyirenda said in an interview in Chengdu, China that the private sector can only grow if it engages into partnerships with foreign firms.
Mr. Nyirenda said such partnerships present increased opportunities for increased finances and technology transfer that can boost operations and productivity levels of local firms.
He pointed out that there are immense lessons that Zambian firms can learn from China’s steady economic progression.
Mr. Nyirenda challenged Zambian companies to take advantage of business linkages government has set up and identify partners for their businesses to grow and impact positively on the economy.
